I always tell all my users to disable it. The firewall prompts when hopping worlds, using dax walker, grabbing GE prices, or loading paint images can really get in the way. I've seen some users get very irritated over having to accept all the prompts if they are not aware of the option to disable it. There's also an issue when making any connection on the JavaFX application thread on a mac - the firewall prompt never appears, and the tribot client freezes (disabling the firewall solves it).

If it's really possible to unilaterally disable firewall without user consent, that would seem as a poor implementation of this feature.

No such thing as perfect security. Sometimes, all it takes is protection from script kiddies.

However, in software development, the saying goes that if the security feature is inconvenient, the users will not use it. That's what we're seeing here, and why it looks as if it may be removed.

Being able to casually remove or subvert it is far from perfect. It turns security into a marketing shtick.

Users are often fine with some level of inconvenience as long as it serves a purpose. And you're telling us it doesn't, at all.

I'm telling you from my professional degree in software engineering as well as multiple years of experience. Let's take a very simple example; it's a known fact that most people reuse their passwords, despite them knowing the danger. We're talking about people willing to risk their bank account instead of use separate passwords or download a password manager. And we're not talking about your 85 year old grandma. People do it in every field, at every age, and at every technical competency.

The Tribot firewall is capable of preventing a large number of not-so-competent programmers hack your account. But since it's inconvenient, many users just disable it, me included.

 

And it's not "casual" to disable it. I welcome you to try. It's not particularly difficult, but the competency of most people who are interested in stealing childrens' game accounts is low.

Many, many security features are that easy to circumvent. I mean, hell, TRibot is literally based on the fact that Java security features are fairly simple to break. You can argue that they are poorly implemented, but everyone uses it and no one markets it. Probably because it's not inconvenient, and offers at least a tiny bit of protection.

That's exactly my point. Security that doesn't take a second thought to break serves no purpose. When multiple scripters are confident they can defeat the measure that's supposed to prevent them from malpractice in the first place, it needs to be improved.

People are earning thousands of dollars in this "childen's game", enough to take it seriously.

Expect future releases of tribot to disable the firewall by default.

With any luck, it will be removed altogether eventually.

 

If you're so serious about it, use the firewall on your operating system or on your router. They exist explicitly for this purpose.

    • Today marks a big day for TRiBot! To make it easier for users to use TRiBot, we've created installers available for every platform! These installers are all bundled with the latest version of OpenJDK 1.8 (Java 😎, which is LG compatible.

      Using TRiBot is now easy. Simply download the installer for your platform, install TRiBot, and run it. The TRiBot Loader will correctly identify the bundled JDK so there's no need to change the Java selection.

      Windows

      EXE installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.exe


      MSI installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.msi


      Portable version: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.zip


      Mac OS

      Installer: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.dmg


      Portable version: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.tgz


      Unix/Linux

      Installer: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.sh


      RPM installer (CentOS/Fedora): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.rpm


      DEB installer (Debian): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.deb


      Portable version: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.tar.gz


      Platform Independent

      JAR file: tribot-loader-4.0.3.jar


      Note that this jar file does not include the bundled JDK.



      Windows and Mac OS users may notice a warning message stating that the installer/application is un-recognized or un-trusted. Please ignore this message and proceed with running the installer/application. We need to acquire a code signing certificate so that we can sign the installers letting the operating system know that these files can be trusted. It will take a week or more to acquire one, so please hold tight.

      Other notable changes to the TRiBot Loader:

      Support getting the version from OpenJDK distributions


      Add check for bundled JDK


      Copy OpenJDK tools.jar to the bundled JDK if not present


      Set the current java as the first available list entry


      Ignore Java versions which are symbolic links


      Make the bundled JDK the preferred Java version


      Update icon images


      Reduce the number of HTTP calls

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Love, 

      RileyZ

    • Hello TRiBot,

      Today we have a significant release that has been in the works for the last month addressing several key issues, features and bugs in the backlog.

      With these changes, we are also including a new TRiBot Loader which will allow you to select any version that is released. This adds the flexibility of allowing you to revert to a previous version should an issue arise, run development only builds, view an accurate change log between versions etc. we are very proud to offer this feature and think it will add a lot more functionality down the road as we continue to release new versions.

      These changes include 80+ commits by our development team, a list of them is summarized below and also available for your viewing pleasure in the new TRiBot Loader.

      In addition, we have taken additional steps to improve as a development team by adding continuous integration and deployment into our workflow to assist in delivering timely releases such as bug fixes as well as new features on a weekly basis depending on our development cycle.

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!

      Why?

      Increased reliability - less server errors


      Increased availability - less downtime


      Increased security - keeping us and you secure


      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better


      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load


      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster


      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)


      Distributed computing


      Load balancing


      Git management of server files and filesystem


      Redis caching


      How?

      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)


      AWS ElastiCache (Redis)


      AWS Load Balancing


      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)


      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.
